Default Re: You are picking between PS3, 360 or Wii

I still have a SNES hooked up, but I can see graphics play a big part in games. Games like Bioshock, you just couldn't make games like that back in the day.

Obviously you still have many staples of style in the 2d age, but some of the games they make now are just in a whole different dimention stylistically and it definately does play a big part in the way you experiece a game.

Although you can notice many developers focus on the graphics first and everything else second, while back in the day it was just the other way around.

for all the people who think the wii is too casual:

"Nintendo to Unveil 'Core' Titles at E3
Traditional fan base to be honoured with new games.
by Martin Robinson, IGN UK

UK, June 17, 2008 - Nintendo could be unveiling several games for the Wii that will appear to its core fan base at this year's E3, according to comments from a company spokesperson.

Marc Franklin, director of public relations at Nintendo, told GamePro "…we will be announcing several new titles that core gamers will be interested in around the time of E3."

Sure to whip the flames of internet speculation into a veritable inferno, there are no precise details on what the titles may be, though a return to a classic franchise could possibly take the shape of the much rumoured Kid Icarus retread or a truly bespoke new Zelda adventure for the Wii - but don't shoot us if it's neither.

Franklin alluded to the console's fan base, telling GamePro that "The clear majority of people waiting in line outside retailers on Sunday mornings to buy their Wii consoles are core gamers."

The recent release of Okami for the Wii, as well as the unveiling of the Frank Miller tinged Mad World from Sega and Platinum Games also suggest a shift in publisher's attitudes to the system, with Franklin noting that "They realize that Wii is the current platform of choice in this generation, and their bottom lines depend on appealing to the largest base."

good stuff.
